Pinterest Recipe Success

What did we women do in the kitchen before Pinterest? Read cookbooks? That’s so 2010.

I had a few recent MAJOR recipe successes via Pinterest and wanted to share. They are delicious.

Ginger and Cilantro Baked Tilapia —

Recipe here. 

This one was amaaaazing. We actually tried it with salmon the first night, and had it later in the week with tilapia. It was awesome with both.

I used ground ginger, by the way. 


Next was Panko Crusted Chicken Stuffed with Ricotta, Spinach, Tomatoes and Basil.

Recipe here:



SO good. I didn’t brown it in the skillet though, because all of the guts would have fallen out. (Mine wasn’t as beautiful as the above). So I just drizzled a little olive oil on the panko and turned on the broiler for the last couple of minutes so it browned.

Finally, we had Linguine with Garlicky Breadcrumbs last night, as a side dish.

Recipe here:



We looooved these. We don’t eat a lot of pasta. But we used whole wheat spaghetti for this recipe instead of linguine, and it was so yummy. The lemon juice and olive oil was so much lighter than a heavy pasta dish. Rog was a big fan.

That’s all for now, foodies.

Do you believe all of this buzz about Pinterest potentially being a cesspool for lawsuits? I don’t know what to think – but don’t want to be caught in the Napster of 2012, so I definitely have mixed feelings and have pondered shutting down my account. We shall see, I guess.

  1. What an important megasse to be sharing Amelia! I can totally relate to what you are saying. I heard someone speaking just the other day about waking up in the middle of the night and jumping on Facebook like it was the normal thing to do! I see people in restaurants using social media instead of being present and spending real’ time with the people that they love. It’s important for us to keep in mind that the world is not going to fall apart if we are social media free for a couple of days. Time out’ means that we will have more of ourselves to give to the world to our friends, families and work. Thank you for this fabulous reminder. I’m off for a walk during my lunch break today without my phone. HURRAY! X
